Trip to Alibaug , Kashid beach and Murud Zanjira

Its our traditional practice to spend 31st night in some far place from the hustling and bustling of the city.2007 was welcomed in the land of coconuts and fishes ..any guess?GOA a big NO.. Its was our beautiful  Coastal region of Konkan and we almost travelled 12-1300 kms round trip , upto Malvan,Sindhudurg and its virgin beaches.The beaches were quite clean and it was  worth spending a time there.Specially Vengrula Beach.
This time it was a spot pretty near to mumbai and it was Alibaug where we celebrated our New Year.
Lot’s of action and masti unrolled right from meeting up of the gang , start of the journey from Kalyan till we dropped to our home back.It was 2 nights and 3 days of fun , excitement , Dhammal Masti and 1000 volts josh .We only survived on small fish,big fish and only fish and only bottled water .Oh Fish!! 🙂

You may be wondering what we did in a small place like Alibaug.Well Alibaug really doesn’t have anything great either ,all it offers is some dirty beaches and strangely some good eating places.Varsoli beach was the only one decent enough  which was our first spot.Just 25 kms from Alibaug down south is Kashid Beach and another 50 kms you will find Murud Janzira beach and fort.
So we had a good plan of checking out all these places and we had ample time too in our hand.

Alibaug beach is really not the recommended beach .Its like our Juhu chowpathy ; Dirty .The water smells of chemicals and froth confirming of all those waste released from the Ispath Industries lining the western coast  of Alibaug,Uran and JNPT .
Kashid beach is relatively far more better but not quite up to mark.This beach has almost all the right ingredients offered by nature like white sand , large part of beach is dry and less polluted water .The  place can be a hotspot for tourist,but sadly and for me “disgustingly” the place lacks good restaurants, comfortable changing rooms and Cleanliness .I saw women climbing mountains for toilets and men easily doing spring water irrigation all over the place.We Indians are master’s in making a place filthy/dirty.This beach is a complete ignorance from the eyes of people who can sense potential tourism in the region,to be truthful no one cares for this beach , not even the locals and forget the government.All focus is on Goa it seems.

Murud Zanjira is another messy place, still a one time visit.Another blunder of ignorance for a place of such a historic importance and a potent tourism destination.If we Indians feels the place to be dirty , what wud be the kind of image in the minds of foreign tourist?
Worst part is no decent eating place nearby.Still the journey to the fort in the boat and the adventure of stepping out on the steps of the Gigantic Fort from the shaking boat is really exciting and dangerous.Its really slippery out there.
The Guide will utter the same crap like for other forts, if you have an  experience.Some dates, some names ….some hidden tunnels and finally some idiotic jokes,but still do make it a part of your package. 🙂

For anyone visting Alibaug  do visit a simple,decent restaurant named “Sukh sagar”,its near Alibaug ST depot.The food if not authentic KonKani , still satisfies your hunger with wide variety of sea foods.And don’t miss the drink named “soll Kadi”.Its like buttermilk ,but made with cocunut juice and some Kokam in it.Its as refreshing like a chilled beer.We liked it so much that when leaving for mumbai we parcelled 24 packets just for our return journey.

The 30th night was a night of friends who where high,drunk,in control and who got emotional, grave’s were dug out just to make the past pleasant and to fix all  the pending bugs.We sat in the cold ,rounded ,poking jokes ,belching smoke  .. blabbering , followed by discussion’s on past,broken hearts , opening the unsolved mysteries of friendship and betrayal,.allegations ..justifications, tears .. tears on smiles but  finally burying the hatchets.

Special moments were caught on mobiles ,recording’s of the converstation were made unknowingly by some moron.Hey you did a great job.  :-)The sight was captured digitally.Someday our brain may wither away the pleasant memories , but we have  harnessed the technology and frozen the golden moments in sound files ,digital pics and offcourse this blog which will remain close to the heart and which will make us nostalgic by remembering the good old days.

Next year the target is NorthIndia…and we are coming to rock it…yoyooyo

I booked the accomodation quite late without considering the RUSH and Demand during the year end.I called up 20 odd places from below list and finally got lucky in a place in varsoli.He charged 1500/- for 1 day.This price is tripled during 31st celebration time.The actual cost is 500 Bucks  during off season.The room was OK kind wid a TV.
